An inner region of Melbourne, south east of the city centre, Armadale is a thriving suburb with a growing population. It is in this location that Lend Lease has erected a new luxury residential precinct known as Toorak Park. Adjacent to the railway station, Toorak Park boasts the construction of 448 apartments and 18 townhouses, divided across four leafy quarters.
With residences ranging in size from 49m2 to 145m2 with 1-3 bedroom apartments, Toorak Park offers young families and professionals “superbly crafted living” with close proximity to the city, local amenities, and public transport, all with a relaxed suburban lifestyle.
Situated alongside the suburb of Toorak — long regarded as Melbourne’s most affluent suburb — Armadale is considered one of the area’s most desirable suburbs. A modern style “underpinned by an appreciation for quality and longevity”, Toorak Park is the result of a collaboration between Lend Lease, architects Denton Corker Marshal, interior designers Carr Design Group, and landscape designers Tract.
The new neighbourhood is inspired by the local environment, creating a “village within a village” scenario. One third of the site space has been dedicated to open space, with lushly landscaped communal gardens and a tree-lined boulevard providing direct access to Toorak railway.
A signature style of elegance, refinement and practicality has been carried throughout the entire development, inside and out. The extensively landscaped site, envisioned by Mike Stokes, Director of landscape architecture at Tract, has delivered a seamless design that includes a series of sculpted balconies, terraces and common walkways using pavers supported by Buzon Screwjack Pedestals from Pasco Construction Solutions.
Invaluable in the construction of raised floors, Buzon pedestals proved to be the perfect solution for creating level courtyards, terraces and other hardscaped floors throughout the Toorak Park project. De Fazio Tiling Projects were engaged to install approximately 10,000m2 of 600mm x 600mm granite and bluestone pavers on Buzon Pedestals, ranging from 50mm to 150mm in height.
Buzon pedestals support external surfaces to allow a seamless flow between indoor and outdoor horizontal surfaces. They prevent water ponding and comply with requirements for the finished ground level to step-down and fall away from the building.
A fully adjustable and patented solution for sloping substrates, Buzon pedestals create a flat stable surface between heights of 17mm to 1070mm to conceal mechanical, electrical and plumbing services, while providing easy access for maintenance of waterproof membranes.
Buzon Pedestals reduce the weight bearing loads on concrete slabs, by eliminating screeding, sand/cement beds for pavers and tiles, and improve structure-borne impact noise resistance in multi-storey buildings.
Buzon Pedestals also have solid sustainability credentials. They are manufactured from 80 percent recycled polypropylene and are 100 percent recyclable. Designed, manufactured and tested in Belgium, Buzon pedestals have been used on projects all over the world for over 30 years and now includes Toorak Park among its many successes.
